The Gatehouse Holiday Cottage
The Gatehouse is a recently renovated detached barn conversion, set apart from the road in private grounds in Makeney, Derbyshire. It is a beautiful holiday cottage built to the highest standards with modern wooden flooring throughout. It benefits from under floor heating and is finished beautifully throughout with high quality fixtures and fittings.
Great Holiday retreat
Just returned home from having a FAB three day break at the Gatehouse. The house ticked all the boxes. Plenty of space, equipment and cleanliness. Highlight though was definitely the indoor swimming pool/hot tub and steam room. The whole family used it and our grandchildren especially were never out of the pool..!! The house is situated in a lovely scenic area with literally a minute walk to the pub, this being “The Holly Bush Inn”. We visited here a couple of times!. Good food and beer.
Marie and Tim ( owners) were very welcoming and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them… Marie even posted back our phone charger that we left to us!Thanks again for letting us stay and enjoy your lovely house.We had lovely family time together and it just made my husbands 65 th birthday special. Thank you to our daughter for finding this “gem of a place”!!
We will definitely be back for a return visit!

Fantastic Family Venue
We have just returned from a fantastic 5 nights at The Gate House to celebrate my mother’s 60th birthday. We were a party of 18 ranging in age from 63 to 8 months old, and can honestly say there was something for everyone. From booking to arrival and all our questions in between, nothing was too much trouble for Tim, he even rang me to reassure and confirm details. On arrival, Tim showed us around and made us feel extremely welcome and at ease so that we could feel free to make it our home for the next few days.
The pool and hot tub were definitely the highlights and kept both the kids and adults entertained morning, noon and night! Lots to see and do locally yet no need to leave if you didn’t want to. Fabulous outside space and gardens with so many nooks and crannies for kids to play hide and seek and plenty of seating areas for an afternoon drink (or 2!) for the adults. The open plan kitchen/lounge area is perfect for large family groups and a separate downstairs seating area meant people could get quiet time away from the group if needed.
We would highly recommend both the venue and owner and will hopefully be back sometime soon! Thanks again for a great weekend.
